Sweden Joins NATO’s Emerging War Against Russia

May 30th, 2016

Eric Zuesse

Sweden, which historically has been a ‘neutral’ country between the U.S. and Russia, is joining the NATO buildup against Russia, allowing NATO to place nuclear weapons in Sweden for an attack against Russia, and, like NATO (of which Sweden isn’t a member) lying about it to their people, and to the world.

The alleged reason for joining the operation is that "Russian aggression against Ukraine breaches international law and challenges the European security order”, according to Sweden’s ‘defence’ minister Peter Hultqvist. He denied nuclear weapons would be part of it. He also said, "I have sometimes wondered if there has been deliberate disinformation” by opponents of the proposal. (Let him call this report such ‘disinformation’, because I’m going to link here to solid sources that expose his and ‘The West’s’ other vicious lies leading straight to World War III.)

Memorial Day Ignores Millions of US Imperial Victims

May 30th, 2016

Stephen Lendman

The day commemorates lost lives of US servicemen and women sent to war for the wrong reasons - from the 18th century to today, notably America’s so-called War of Independence, its Civil War, WW I and II and all subsequent wars of choice.

America’s only enemies in the past 70 years and throughout at least most of its history were and remain ones it invents.

It could have been a model peaceful nation had it chosen a different path. Instead, its history reflects unbridled militarism, endless wars of choice, related violence and chaos, contempt for rule of law principles, along with unparalleled barbarism and viciousness - while vital homeland needs increasingly go begging.

America’s privileged class lets others do its fighting and dying, innocent youths to conflicts based on Big Lies

Memorial Day Hypocrisy

May 30th, 2016

Stephen Lendman

America is a warrior state, a serial aggressor, unaccountable for unparalleled high crimes against peace because of public ignorance and indifference.

Americans are sublimely unaware of their nation’s history. Its so-called war of independence substituted new management for old. Everything changed but stayed the same.

Civil war had nothing to do with freeing slaves, everything to do with keeping the nation intact, maintaining business as usual.

Imperial America enslaved Black Africans, exterminated its native people, stole their land and resources, stole half of Mexico, followed by Cuba, the Philippines, Guam, Samoa, Hawaii, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Canal Zone, Puerto Rico and other territories.

West Hails Release of Ukrainian Killer

May 30th, 2016

Stephen Lendman

Ukrainian pilot Nadezhda Savchenko involved with the infamous Nazi-infested Aidar battalion is an unapologetic killer.

Last March, she was convicted in a Russian court on multiple charges, including murdering two Russian journalists in Donbass - Igor Kornelyuk and Anton Voloshin. In June 2014, she sent coordinates of their location to an Aidar artillery unit.

The attack on their position killed them along with Ukrainian civilians. On March 22, RT International’s Murad Gazdiev twittered “(t)he court has no doubts about #Savchenko’s guilt on all counts.”

No Prospects for Peace in Syria

May 30th, 2016

Stephen Lendman

Obama’s war continues, hundreds of US special forces and marines involved in combat, directly aiding terrorists in northern Syria.

Claiming they’re advising and assisting (nonexistent) moderate rebels is pure rubbish. Obama wants Assad forcibly ousted before he leaves office. Maybe he intends US-led NATO bombing. Peace talks begun in early February were dead on arrival, now indefinitely suspended. On Thursday, pro-Western UN special envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, told Security Council members during a closed session that progress toward so far unattainable ceasefire must be achieved before resuming them.

Eric Zuesse

U.S. Ambassador Lewis Lukens’s sworn testimony in the case of Hillary Clinton’s privatization of the U.S. Secretary of State’s email is the first evidence to be released in the Clinton email cases, and it was published on May 26th at the website of Judicial Watch, the organization that originally brought the suit. Headlining "First Deposition Testimony from Clinton Email Discovery Released”, it reported that:

Judicial Watch today released the deposition transcript of Ambassador Lewis Lukens, former deputy assistant secretary of state and executive director of the State Department’s executive secretariat. The transcript is available here. Amb. Lukens was deposed last week as part of the discovery granted to Judicial Watch by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan in response to its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unsecured, non-government email system (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363)).

NYT: Imperial Press Agent

May 29th, 2016

Stephen Lendman

Times propaganda supports America’s imperial agenda, its Syria coverage some of the worst in memory.

Managed news misinformation and Big Lies consistently substitute for reliable news and information readers need to know.

The Times perpetuates the myth of America’s war on terrorism, its phony intention to degrade and destroy ISIS - the monster it created and supports along with other terrorist groups used as imperial foot soldiers.

Instead of debunking official Big Lies, The Times proliferates them - its latest propaganda piece claiming US airstrikes “are hitting more significant ISIS targets” when no reliable information suggests they’re hitting any.

They continue aiding the monster they claim to oppose, providing weapons and other material support.

Not according to The Times, claiming unnamed “military officials saying they have corrected the poor intelligence collection and clumsy process for identifying targets that initially plagued the campaign, and are now hitting targets like oil rigs and secret cash coffers that finance the terrorist group’s war machine.”

There’s more. The Times says these targets were previously avoided “for fear of causing civilian casualties.”

Fact: US airstrikes target infrastructure and government sites, not terrorists America supports.

Deconstructing Obama’s Demagoguery in Hiroshima

May 29th, 2016

Stephen Lendman

His speeches make painful listening - a litany of deception, Big Lies, and for Hiroshima and Nagasaki victims and survivors, continued coverup of one of history’s great crimes - massacring civilians gratuitously.

Obama saying “(w)e come to mourn the dead” ignores US responsibility for mass murder and endless wars of aggression - notably post-9/11.

Saying “(w)e stand here in the middle of this city (and) force ourselves to feel the dread of children…listen to a silent cry…remember all the innocents killed” in global wars, especially WW II, begs the question of why America nuked Japan twice when it was defeated in process of surrendering.

Obama in Hiroshima Paints a Peace Sign on a Bomb

May 29th, 2016

David Swanson

President Obama went to Hiroshima, did not apologize, did not state the facts of the matter (that there was no justification for the bombings there and in Nagasaki), and did not announce any steps to reverse his pro-nuke policies (building more nukes, putting more nukes in Europe, defying the nonproliferation treaty, opposing a ban treaty, upholding a first-strike policy, spreading nuclear energy far and wide, demonizing Iran and North Korea, antagonizing Russia, etc.).

Where Obama is usually credited -- and the reason he's usually given a pass on his actual actions -- is in the area of rhetoric. But in Hiroshima, as in Prague, his rhetoric did more harm than good. He claimed to want to eliminate nukes, but he declared that such a thing could not happen for decades (probably not in his lifetime) and he announced that humanity has always waged war (before later quietly claiming that this need not continue).

Unaffordable Housing in America

May 28th, 2016

Stephen Lendman

According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) report, titled “Out of Reach 2015,” income inequality in America makes housing increasingly unaffordable.

“(I)n no state, metropolitan area, or county can a full-time worker earning the prevailing minimum wage afford a modest two-bedroom apartment,” it said.

At $7.25 an hour, the federal minimum wage, it would take 112 hours a week, 52 weeks a year, meaning all work and sleep with no time for anything else. Stagnant wages, declining benefits, high inflation (8.8% according to economist John Williams, not the phony 1.1% CPI), and protracted Main Street Depression conditions created a deplorable situation for growing millions.
